Find a Friend Dialogue Exercise

  1. Oh boy is dialogue one of my weaknesses. I can see the purpose it serves, and can understand why some does and doesn’t work (am reading a debut right now with weak dialogue), but I’ve got to warm myself up through writing and re-writing until the dialogue comes across naturally. Otherwise, I’m just sticking to description.

  3. I am just about the opposite, Evangeline. I can write dialogue all day long but feel like I’m trying to wade through molasses when I want to write action or description.

    It’s probably a result of my theater background.
